Business in Development (BiD) promotes poverty reduction through entrepreneurship in developing countries. They do this by engaging companies, NGOs and professionals. The BiD Network is the platform to make this happen.
Among the over 2.000 subscribed users on the site you'll find not only budding enterpreneurs but also experienced advisors and organisations willing to help with finance, technology or PR.
One of the main activities in the network is the Bid Challenge, a business plan competition that attracted more than 800 plans in 2005 when it was first held.
